District Projects and Sponsors!

The Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program is our district’s official supported project! This program raises money to help fund cancer research and supports the Kiwanis Doernbecher Children’s Cancer Program in Portland, OR. Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program in Seattle, WA and the Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program in British Columbia and the Yukon. Through this, we can help raise awareness of cancer and fight to find a cure!

Hershey’s Track and Field Games is Key Club’s new sponsor for this year! It is the largest youth sports program in the United States and Canada! It’s an event that teaches kids that real victory is beating yourself, not others; the real victory is doing what they thought wasn’t possible and having fun! You can volunteer at an event or even host one in your community!

With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. The effects (hidden word: eliminate) of the disease are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. It only takes $1.80 to vaccinate three people!
